“I still like him… we just don’t hang out anymore”: Elizabeth Olsen Hints Scorned Chris Evans Relationship, Claims He ‘tap dances a lot’ on set

Chris Evans and Elizabeth Olsen

The friendship between Elizabeth Olsen and Chris Evans was one to root for. The Marvel actors had grown close to each other as both used to be Valley kids. But time and the industry wear people off and there’s not much left to hold onto from the past. The once close friends have now rare opportunities to hang out or even talk as each tread their separate paths after their MCU careers catapulted them into fame.

Elizabeth Olsen Recalls Her Friendship With Chris Evans

While hooked to a lie detector, the Scarlet Witch actress, Elizabeth Olsen, claims that she and her MCU co-star Chris Evans don’t spend as much time together as they used to. But it’s not a matter of concern or falling out. The two friends, like most young people, grew apart as they grew older. Their demanding profession, further, didn’t make it an easy task for them to stay in touch or even spend time in each other’s company unless it was a Marvel Studios set.

When the interviewer misinterprets that Olsen doesn’t like Evans’ company anymore, the actress quickly rushes to clear the air before any misunderstanding could happen. She brushes away any concerning tone and says, “I don’t, like, still hang out with him anymore. I was doing it more as a Valley kid. But yeah, he has a great laugh. So it makes you feel better about yourself when you tell a joke.” When asked by the interviewer if she stopped “hanging out” with him because of his infamous tap dancing, Olsen further goes on to say, “No, that’s one of the things I like about him. I’ve seen him tap dance, he taps a lot on set.”

The Current Status of Elizabeth Olsen and Chris Evans

While Avengers: Endgame marked the end of an era, its aftershock still lingers among the fandom as well as within the Marvel universe. One of the departures that hit hard was that of Chris Evans’ Captain America. Although with a relatively middling career to show for during his time of casting, Chris Evans was chosen as the perfect Captain America and he grew overnight into his role as the grim and righteous man. Now with an excellent prospect in Hollywood, the actor’s roster is filled with back-to-back projects, with him, currently working alongside Ana de Armas on Ghosted.

Elizabeth Olsen, on the other hand, has always been in the limelight as the elder sibling of the Olsen sisters who are infamous for their extensive Disney careers. Her rise to stardom was a lifelong graph moving upwards at a steady rate. Her role as the Scarlet Witch in the MCU was also 6 years in the making, beginning with her identity as Wanda Maximoff in Age of Ultron (2015) and culminating in the antagonistic Scarlet Witch in the WandaVision finale in 2021. At present, she reigns as the fully evil version of the powerful character as was shown in her latest run in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
